It’s time for our Q1 review of goals we set in January. If you made progress—good job!
If you struggled to keep going, you still have a whole 3 quarters; 9 months; 273 days left in 2017.
If your goals weren’t quite right, now is the time to reassess, revise and recommit.
Here it the progress I’ve made on my writing goals—not to show you how great I am, but to encourage you to keep going on your own goals.
Books I am Working On
I am Rahab (With Faith Like Hers): Goal: release mid 2017.
Progress: A proof is being reviewed by trusted readers for content, theology and scriptural accuracy. Expected release date is the second half of 2017.
Rebuild Your Tattered Temple: Goal: complete final draft for release mid 2018.
Progress: I continue to read this as a private devotional adding comments as I go. I expect to begin revising Q3 or Q4.
Jesus Wants What? Atop the Mountain Goal: determine traditional or indie publishing of these two books by June but keep writing.
Progress: I continue to tweak these. I need to focus more in Q2.
My Beautiful Feet: Goal: determine traditional or indie by June but keep writing.
Progress: It is still a rough draft but I’m having a blast, seeing what Scripture has to say about shoes and our feet as they relate to “How beautiful are the feet that bring good news of the salvation” (Isaiah 52:7; Romans 10:14-15).
From What if to Whatever: Goal: determine traditional or indie by June but keep writing.
Progress: This book continues to be extremely difficult to write, which indicates the importance to keep writing it. Goal for Q2 is to have the chapter order determined and fleshed out into a first draft.
I am Deborah/I am Hannah (With Faith Like Hers): Goal: to begin first draft of Deborah study.
Progress: I have listed the lessons for Deborah but set the book aside in favor of a study of Hannah. I have 32 lessons for Hannah (too many). Goal for Q2 is to determine the chapters and flesh each chapter into a first draft.
Goal: Settle on new vision statement, mission statement and author tag line to help focus my writing and website. Revamp website to make it more user friendly with things of more value to people and for people to understand who I am more easily. Have an author presence on FB in a more purposeful manner. I now post a question or two with link to weekly post on Monday; meme for inspiration on Fridays. DONE see post.
Offer downloadable books on website quarterly. I wanted the first free book in Q1 to be my study Wielding the Sword. I removed it from Kindle sale, but have had to wait until I fulfilled my 90-day requirement with Amazon. That 90-day period will be ending and the book will become available here at CarolPetersonAuthor.com within the next couple of months.
